Michael Kupperman (also known by the pseudonym P. Revess) is an American cartoonist and illustrator. He created the comic strips Up All Night and Found in the Street, and has written scripts for DC Comics. His work often dwells in surrealism and absurdity "played as seriously as possible."
His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, LA Weekly, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, The Independent on Sunday, Libération, Nickelodeon Magazine, The Believer, and Heavy Metal, as well as in comics anthologies such as Hotwire, Snake Eyes, Zero Zero, Hyena, Hodags and Hodaddies, Blood Orange, Rosetta, 106U, and Legal Action Comics. He has also worked on many books and projects for McSweeney's.
HarperCollins published his book, Snake 'n' Bacon's Cartoon Cabaret, in 2000. Parts of his work were animated later that year for the Comedy Central show TV Funhouse, produced by Robert Smigel and Dino Stamatopoulos. In 2005, he started a comic book series called Tales Designed To Thrizzle, published by Fantagraphics. Currently he is writing sketches for a new comedy series starring Peter Serafinowicz, and a Snake 'n' Bacon animated series is in the works for the Adult Swim network.
